Good thing there are no such things as deadlines in the real world.

    This does not surprise me in the least. There are schools in the U.S. that have "no fail" policies as well. The teachers in our math dept. are not even allowed to grade homework. The students get a 100 just for putting some numbers on a piece of paper.

    In the school where my brother teaches, they do no allow grades below a 60. A missed assignment can not count as a zero. He said doing his grades on line is like playing a video game. If student A gets a 60 for a 0, then shouldn't student B get a 120 for a 60?

    I expect the socialists will be calling for a "redistribution of grades" in the near future. It's not FAIR that Johnny always gets A's just because he works hard and is a member of the "lucky sperm club".
